Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Paragraph alignment, part of Photoshop CS6: Text.
When you start to create documents in Photoshop that contain a fair amount of …text, the alignment of that text can become increasingly important. …Let's take a look at some of the options for aligning your text when you're …working with paragraphs in Photoshop. I'll start off by selecting the Text …layer, and then choosing the Type tool from the toolbox. …Then I'll also click to bring up the character and paragraph panels using the …panels button on the Options bar. I'll go ahead and zoom in on the image so …we can see that text a little bit better. And I'll pan across the photo so that we …have the text in a position where the Character and Paragraph panels aren't …blocking it. Then we start off on the Options bar …where we have the option to align the text, we have Left, Center, and Right alignment.…
And with the Text layer active but no text actually selected, those alignment …actions will affect all of the text for that Text layer. …But keep in mind there on the Paragraph panel, we also have the same Setup buttons. …
